We’re taking a short Summer Break and wish you all a wonderful week ahead.

Thank you for all your love and support,

We left you with smiles before our editing break and are happy to be back here with more smiles after a fruitful week of work.

We are also deeply honoured, humbled and delighted to learn that our photograph and haiku Winter Mist featured on NHK World Japan’s Haiku Masters in Tokyo – Part 1, broadcast on 4th March 2019 from Tokyo.

We are very grateful to presenters Kit Pancoast Nagamura, Kazuko Nishimura and Dan Mitsu for their thoughtful and entertaining interpretation of this photo haiku.

The entire episode, featuring a number of photo haiku and haiku by other international haiku poets, is available to view on the NHK World Japan website and lasts approximately 28 minutes.

Wishing you all a magical Wednesday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

Wordless Wednesday: Smiles in the Breeze

It’s been a breezy and sunny start to the day at 4C and took a little while to warm up.

We are taking a short blogging break to focus on editing our next book and will be back next week. We will post a Silent Sunday post on our sister blog Tranature as per normal and will check in to read and catch up on comments when we can.

We wish you all a very happy Wednesday and a wonderful weekend!
